Lancelot Link and the Evolution - "Sha-La Love You." This is a bubblegum track ostensibly by the secret agent/chimp of the 60s tv show.
Larry Davis - "Down Home Funk Pts 1 and 2." Fantastic psych-soul track I hunted down while researching a possible article for the Oxford Am. I didn't write the article and I'm too lazy to see if this one ended up on the actual Oxford Am cd, but I'll look later tonight. It should be there.
The Last - Confession (1988) and Awakening (1989). This is a power-pop band that was on SST in the late 80s. I'm sad to say that I don't like their music much. Although they strive to create Beatles-or-Big Star-esque harmonies and melodies, I think the skill is there, but the craft is missing. I can't remember any of these songs once they're over, and that's not good for power pop.
